Happy Monday Everyone!!
I can’t even begin to tell you how epic my weekend was. I’m super stoked to share with all of you!!
I had an absolutely epic day on the mountain Saturday morning. I didn’t share my plans last week because I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pull it off. In preparation for Humphreys next weekend, I was planning a triple accent of the mountain near my work. This would be roughly 8 miles and 3,500 feet of climbing.
Bottom line…my legs showed up big time and we dominated this D$%& run!!!
I wanted to be on the mountain by 4 am so that I could knock out a good amount of this run before the sun was up, it was going to be hot. My goal was to complete each lap within an hour so that would be about 35 minutes to the summit and then 25 minutes back to the trailhead. Well I started a bit later than I wanted but still got the first lap knocked out before the sun came up. The next two laps were completed in pure daylight but the temps were around 85* so it was tolerable. Not much to report about the laps themselves, I ended up sticking to the hour per lap plan pretty well, there was a lot of climbing, a lot of power hiking, and a lot of downhill running which was awesome. In the end the run was 8.7 miles and 3,663 feet of climbing. Just a monster day with the most climbing I’ve ever done in one session and complete confidence in my attempt at Humphreys next week. Totally awesome!!
It’s waterproof in the integrated case so the kids and I had a ton of fun playing around with it in the pool yesterday. I never complained about footage from my phone but man does this thing shoot some awesome video. So be on the lookout for new and improved video coming to a theatre near you….or primarily on this blog but you get the idea lol.
The next two items are completely un-running related but just added to the awesomness of this weekend!!
Dean Ambrose won the Money in the Bank ladder match then went on to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that same night. Awesome sequence and I hope they give him a lengthy title run. If you have no idea what I’m talking about please disregard lol.
The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Championship last night in a thrilling game 7. LeBron James gets his third NBA title and Ohio finally has a sports championship. Can we stop hating on LeBron already, the guy is a stud. Again, if you have no idea what I’m talking about please disregard lol.
In closing, just overall awesome weekend (not sure how many times I used that word in this post lol)!! I make every effort not to overplay my tag lines but there is only one way to close up this post…
